Conceived of and executed by The Uncle
, the podcast accompaniment to the Game Preserve has begun to be produced. When we're sufficiently non-embarrassed by the content or presentation they will begin to be released.
Several days ago, I managed to stumble upon a Nintendo Wii, as I had been vaguely hoping would be the way such a thing worked out. I admit to finding unexplainable attraction to the Wii Sports game, I think in large part due to the point system, and the enticing carrot of "1000 point mastery" towards which I already am encouraged to strive. It doesn't look all that time consuming to reach such a goal, but I've only set aside a few hours to the pursuit thus far. I was also pleased to investigate their 'virtual console' which is making old Nintendo
, as well as Sega
and, oddly enough, TurboGrafx
games available for emulated download and play. I have high hopes that they will continue to build out all such libraries, perhaps one day reaching near 100% coverage. Perhaps at that time the eBay prices for original boxed copies of the games will drop through the floor, and my various quests can be completed in a more monetarily reasonable way.
I am a long standing fan of awesome hairstyles, and Tito
has presented us with a most excellent link of some amazing examples - it's so great, that it also must serve as the internet aneurysm
for the day.
